Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

In this course students will work on improving their innovation skills. We will discuss those behaviors linked to innovation and creativity and students will work on developing these skills in a 3 day innovation event (hackathon) in an innovation event in NYC in class students will identify an unmet need and develop a solution to the opportunity build a prototype and business model around this solution and pitch this solution to a panel of investors. Students will gain a broader perspective of both the challenges (i.e. organizational and institutional) in an increasingly digital economy) and opportunities (i.e. unmet customer needs and possibilities for future ventures) in this economy. Students will formulate teams to generate solutions to real-world problems. Students will learn and apply team innovation principles, business model innovation, design thinking, and product development, the class will also cover the psychology of creativity, product pitches, and the basic principles of leading innovation in a team including team demography and team processes that drive innovation. Students will then practice these skills.

When Offered Fall, spring.
